Swimming at the Oliver Bath House

I really enjoy going swimming, as anyone who knows me can tell you. And I take it seriously, with a routine that includes 40 laps, and employs the strokes freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and even the butterfly most days (some days I decide to just do the freestyle for all 40 laps without stopping). It's a calming experience that allows me time to think in relative peace and quiet.

These days, this swimming happens at the Oliver Bath House in the Southside on 10th st.

I really like going swimming in the pool that helped teach me to swim, and in a pool so steeped in the history of the neighborhood I love. But moreover, I just love to swim, and this is a great place to do so affordably.
